of gazprom economy in fueling so much corruption. so russia has a very different game to play here. we would like to see russia play a helpful role, in like providing the ssn-6 missile technology which seems to be the basis for the next missile launch we may see out of north korea. so there's no doubt that the globalization, the rising power or trying to keep power in the case of russia is effecting the leadership, decision-making how they think about north korea. let me bring this back to one point with china and the united states relationship. i don't think that china is going to cooperate with north korea just for the sake of north korea issues. that is to say, if they see the united states going in a different direction as jacques suggested rebalancing and supporting japan to be more assert tiff, they may decide, we're not going to cooperate in that with the united states because that is not in our chinese interests. what we're trying to do is convince the chinese we're not against a rising china. we want to see a growing middle class in china. we want to see a prosperous and more free c
